What do normal people do in their spare time?

My head sponge has been smooshed...

I've been a part of a search for a new place to live now for about two months so my social life has died a horrible, agonizing death. I have no idea what to do in my spare time at the moment except for maybe planking...

For the love of all that is holy what do people with basic cognitive function do in their spare time? Blurgh. I've been so bored lately! any recommendations for a laugh?

Go out and make new friends.

Not having any social life is distinctively abnormal.

Other then that, read, watch films, play sports/ exercise, etc.

Read a book, play a video game, watch a film, listen to music, plan how you would turn the moon into a weapon or spend some time with friends. All of which can be done all at the same time, depending on what type of friends you have.

I dont know where you live but I can give you a basic list of what I do in my spare time other then playing games.

Skateboarding
Bar crawling
cliff diving
bridge jumping
table surfing - this is not what you think it is
watch movies with friends
drinking heavily with friends
mountain biking
hiking
playing with the kids

So there is lots of things you could be doing.

God, just conform already, geez! Why should you potentially do anything that could better humanity when you can just fit in like the rest of us?

Watch movies & TV
Listen to music
Read books
Going outside

Collect Stamps
Play Jigsaws
Uum... Listen to the collected works of Elgar?
Ah, I don't know. Who needs spare time anyway?!

CAPTCHA: Exercise More
...Is The Escapist trying to tell me something?

Err play video games? Preferable the ones that has a long game time like Mmo, rpg and games with online multiplayers.

It is decided!
I shall conform and EMBRACE MEDIOCRITY!
Right after I do this:

I'll also do more things and stuff. hehe

well you can do whatever you please (within boundaries ofc) thats what makes it so brilliant.

I was in the same situation after moving back home from Boston. I went to my FLGS and start playing D&D encounters and met a bunch of cool new people. Played some Pathfinder as well.

I don't know, I get scared and tend to stab them before they can tell me. 0_0 *twitch*

I'm afraid I don't understand how "not conforming" would benefit humanity.

Also the OP never mentioned anything about being on the cusp of a scientific breakthrough he was just looking for advice for what to do with him time.

Watch My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic so you can learn the art of friend-making.

Just do what I do all day: sitting around in my pants building skyscrapers in Minecraft. It's super effective.

I look at ponies, work on my coilgun and read physics. I haven't got the foggiest what normal people do, though.

They go outside and talk with/ hang out with friends. Literally just go out and do whatever you like and eventually you will run into someone. I do this on occasion. I find everything extremely boring if I spend too much time with it so I generally try to change up what I am doing to keep life interesting.

If you want friends, just go outside and participate in social events and shit.

The ultimate cure--or perhaps boredom sink?--for any and all boredom is simple:

StumbleUpon.

Oh yeah, good idea!


Here you go, just keep watching...

Go for a walk. Go to the gym. Go for a run. Go swimming. Take up kickboxing. Or Jiu jitsu. Or playing a musical instrument of some sort.

Go to your local community centre and see what they've got going on. Check out their schedule and you'll probably find something that interests you.

Oh God no. Do you have any idea what you've done?! You've broken the most sacred rule! We're doomed, doomed I say!

OT: Well, I don't know, amuse yourself.

You are on a gaming website and I'm assuming you have some form of currency so just put those together and see what happens. If you want to be a bit more active, get a bike, learn a martial art, etc, etc.

Or do what I do: Stay inside and slowly rot away.

...don't do what I do, or at least in prolonged doses.

Die a little more inside as you realize precious seconds trickle away unspent, turning into hours, days, months of unfulfilled empty meaningless time.... you know, just like the rest of us

20 replies before someone mentioned exercise. What is it with this site? Are you all that lazy that no one suggests exercise?

we consider ourselves above mere exercise

Is this an obesity rights motto?

OT: Exercise does help pass the time.

I'm also not entirely sure what part of your social life is being damaged by this search - no friends to do stuff with?

As a University student with a job I envy your free time. There are also so many things I'd like to do when I can that I have to choose... I usually end up playing video games... Which I imagine would be a common response judging from the website you're on :)

Well, considering I have no friends (yay for schizoid personality disorder), only acquaintances that I meet through the world of pipebands, I do schoolwork, play in a band obviously, play video games, hang out on the internet, household chores and do some exercising every now and again. Also porn. Try porn. That'll pass the time very well.

Judging from what I can see they post facebook statuses about what they're watching, eating or drinking at any given time.

Don't they... Play that angry birds game?
That's what they do right? Those Iphone things

You have access to the internet, check out online free games.

I have no possible idea of what you could do
*Ponders about the current site he is on*
nope no idea at all

Get massive. Duh.

I've heard he can glide over a block with those back-wings.

ChromaticWolfen:
plan how you would turn the moon into a weapon.

I tried this, trust me, it will only end in tragedy. *looks at burnt parrot*

OT: I usually consume time sleeping (what? I'm a teenager) and thinking about stuff, like how the universe works. Many a mindblowns will be had.

From what I've seen, getting drunk, dancing in clubs and fucking. Not necessarily in that order.

*tilts head* Why post episode 1? Episode 3 is when the series rises above a level that isn't utter garbage.

OT: 1) This is not a gathering place of normal people. Just sayin'
2) I immerse myself in stories. Visual novels, games, books, manga, anime, just forget about reality for hours at a time. But I'm hardly a mentally healthy person so...
